The current-gen BMW 5 Series is due for a generation change and BMW it seems is going all out to make the next-gen model the best 5 Series yet. Besides the regular petrol and diesel powered range, the German carmaker is also preparing an environmentally-friendly plug-in hybrid model.

The vehicle is likely to use the same set up as in the X5 plug-in hybrid, but with greater performance and efficiency refinements. Inside, it’s apparent that the new 5 Series will adopt the same design language introduced with the 7 Series last year. A simplified iDrive and prominent LCD screens will dominate the cabin, with additions like gesture control already a given. Also, expect the overall quality to take a significant step forward from the current model.

Like the new 7 Series, the 2018 5 Series will be lighter and more rigid thanks to usage of more sophisticated materials from the new CLAR platform. We will get to know more details later this year during the likely unveil of the new 5. The plug-in hybrid version, meanwhile, is due for 2018.
